The Click-A-Brick Mighty Machines is an educational building block set for children ages five and up. What makes this product unique is the way the blocks connect to each other. Rather than connecting in just one way, Click-A-Bricks can be connected from all sides and corners, even forming diagonal lines.
This way of building helps children improve motor and dexterity skills as well as their spatial reasoning. The Mighty Machines set comes with instructions on how to build various machines. Parental interaction is highly encouraged to better facilitate learning – not to mention some great 1-on-1 time with your child.
Click-A-Brick Mighty Machinesk also helps nurture a child’s imagination and creativity by allowing them to build anything they can think of in 3D. Many different shapes and creations can be made, spurring the child’s imagination further with each other. The product is very durable as well, where the child can actually play with the creation they made – or quickly disassemble it to make another.

When I came across the Click-A-Brick, I thought it would be something that my boys would like. They love Legos and building so I just knew they would have a blast. However, when the package arrived and I saw it in person I knew it was not an activity that I was going to be able to do with them, as I am not a skilled builder. Therefore, I enlisted the help of their dad.
I know this says that it is for ages 5+ but my kids have many toys that say that and they all catch on with how to use them. My oldest son is five, he is a quick learner, and this set was even difficult for him. While they were happy playing with the set and attempting to build whatever they liked I was disappointed with the quality of this set.
The pieces are not easy to connect when building specific items from the directions, the directions are not easy to follow, and once build it is too easy to disassemble the creation. The kids dad spent over an hour building the helicopter to replicate the manual since the boys really wanted it built. However, I am not keen on how the activity went down, I like them to be able to have fun and the Click-A-Brick Mighty Machinesreally didn’t provide the experience I had in mind.
Overall, I cannot recommend this product to other parents as I feel it would just lead to frustrated kids (possibly frustrated parents) and this set is not more fun than Legos ( as advertised). This is a great concept but it needs some work.
